Migulin, Vladimir Vasil’evich


Born July 10 (23), 1911, in Sereda (present-day Furmanov, Ivanovo Oblast). Soviet radio physicist; corresponding member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR (1970). Member of the CPSU since 1945. Graduated from the Leningrad Polytechnic Institute (1932).

Migulin worked at the Institute of Physics of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR from 1934 to 1941 and at the Heat Engineering Laboratory of the Academy of Sciences from 1946 to 1951. From 1951 to 1954 he was director of the Physicotechnical Institute in Sukhumi. Since 1969 he has been director of the Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, the Ionosphere, and Radio Wave Propagation of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. He has taught at Moscow State University since 1935 (professor since 1948). He was deputy general director of the International Atomic Energy Agency (1957–59) and has been vice-president of the International Radio Union since 1972.

Migulin’s main works were concerned with the theory of oscillations, the propagation of radio waves, and other problems of radio physics. He received the State Prize of the USSR (1946 and 1953). He has been awarded the Order of Lenin, three other orders, and medals.
